Struck a Chord

It was last winter at Thanksgiving that I first saw Capper’s Farmer. I was thrilled as I read it; I enjoyed every article, piece of history, and recipe. I am ordering a subscription today, because it is a magazine you keep and refer to again and again.

When I read “Homemade and Beautiful”, it struck a chord because Hank’s growing-up years sounded like mine – not a lot of money, frugal, and wanted quality in what you had. I don’t sew or make quilts, but I have enjoyed painting/drawing family and friends to give as gifts. Occasionally I do portraits for money, but a lot of it is the joy I find in giving my work to loved ones.

Thank you for reading this letter and for being a part of Capper’s Farmer.
